The major change is I renamed uaf_to_password.c to uaf2john.c and updated it to run on non-VMS systems. The kit includes a vms_tst.uaf file, synthesized from the bf_tst.in passwords, that can be used to test uaf2john and subsequently vms_fmt with 1500 test hashes. Thank you! Please announce this on john-users and ask for feedback. Maybe we have another VMS person on that list. ;-) Personally, I only experimented with OpenVMS briefly in 1999 on a MicroVAX (which I still have) - building an old version of John (current at the time) with gcc 2.5 (whatever I could find in binary form for VMS on VAX). I never released that stuff - it was a quick hack only. I never experimented with actually cracking VMS passwords (Jean-loup Gailly contributed his stuff a couple of years later), but I did transfer SYSUAF.DAT to my Linux box of the time over DECnet somehow (over 10base2 Ethernet). My install of OpenVMS (inherited from the previous owner of this machine) lacked TCP/IP. I don't recall what I used for file transfer. I recall that for interactive access I used "sethost" from Linux DECnet tools. I also recall that it was curious to find out how DECnet relied on custom Ethernet MAC addresses - implying that any NIC card capable of running DECnet had to allow the driver to alter the MAC address (which might be a reason why NIC cards allow for this in general). But that's essentially all VMS experience I had... Not much of it. So let's see if we have someone with more current VMS experience/needs on john-users. Thanks again, Alexander
